For Tia Jackson, her life’s theme song would be “Freedom” by Beyonce. Tia has lived in Richmond, Virginia all her life. She grew up here playing track – this is her home. So choosing to come to VCU for a Master’s in Health Administration was a natural choice.
“I chose VCU because it’s highly ranked in my program,” Tia said. “It’s also close to home.”
Even though Tia has only been here a year, she is excited to see how diversity is included on the MCV Campus. As a SCIE Ambassador, Tia hopes to learn better communication skills.
“I hope to become more comfortable expressing my opinions with those who I do not know well,” Tia said.
As advice to new health sciences students like herself, she recommends that they never be afraid to ask questions.
Tia Jackson is a member of the 2018 – 2019 SCIE Ambassador Cohort.
